Toad Rider

Submitted by Freddyk
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The Swamp People have learned to tame the Giant Toads that live there, and their powerful Shamans can even ride them. If the Swamp People are still unknown from the rest of the world, it's probably because most intruders are quickly swallowed by those beasts...

Note that the special effects will not appear in Magos, you have to import the model in game to see them.
The model is meant to use the "spirit of vengeance" projectile.

Edit: I added the Toad without rider, thanks to Kyrbi0 for beginning the job.

Extremely well done model-edit with lots of custom geometry and animations. Model works in-game and performs well. Great job!

    Would it be possible to add a model of the riderless toad to this resource page?
    It'd be useful.

    I've actually already done this, Freddyk; do you want me to just upload it here for you to add?

    Great!
    No need to weigh on the bundle filesize. You could attach it to a comment here on this thread, and ask Freddyk to put a link to it in the description :)

    What draenei... This 'swamp people' race is not inspired by draenei, but by the Vedalken, part of the most famous and expensive among collectible card games, by WotC iirc.

    Edit: talking about inspiration here is going way too far, as I have no proof whatsoever that the author even knew about vedalken before making swamp people. It is correct to say that there is great similarity between the two. Lovely execution btw :)

    Thanks for your kind comments!

    Sure, please post the model here, I will check it and add it to the bundle.

    Actually I made up this creature from my own imagination, I don't know these Vedalken.

    As expected, I was wrong in assuming too much :)
    You might find them interesting, try to google the word!

    Would it be okay if I add you @Kyrbi0 as the author of this model as well?

    Normally I'd be honored, but honestly I did next to nothing on this; I simply *removed* geosets he painstakingly created. I didn't even finish (ropes?) & IIRC I didn't even do the harder work of removing unused animations (not quite sure how).
    I'll leave it up to @Freddyk , but honestly I did what any amateur could do in less than 10 minutes of 'work'. :<

    Enjoy my dudes.

    Sorry for that, I forgot to move the camera! That's why you see nothing it's just viewing above the toad where the rider was...

    I just updated the bundle, it should be fixed now.

    This is so friggin cool! I have been, just for my own amusement, making a cosmetic replacement of the NE units. I think this unit would be lovely for replacing Malfurion or Tyrande, because i really have not done any hero swaps yet. If nothing else, it would be a lovely do-over on the Huntress. Do you have any voice/weapon suggestions for it?

    Really, such a beautiful idea you have here! :)

    EDIT!: And i agree with the others who state it really would be nice for the frog itself to have some kind of team color, whether it be banner attachment, or otherwise.

    I love it! One thing: can you separate the rider so I can make it mount and unmount? This is so cool!
